The game kinda went off track in season 3 of Sherlock, don't you think? They focused so much on the relationship between characters there was no time to portray any real case, that's when Sherlock is in his element. I kinda felt lost and at times bored during this season, I couldn't believe what they had done to the Sherlock that set our screens and our minds ablaze with his brilliance and wit. The way he arrogantly went about solving cases and putting people in their places was astounding to say the least. The third season started off pretty well though with a James Bond-ish like opening scene in slow motion. That scene led to this conversation with the cousins on whatsapp:
Zak: Would you have liked Sherlock if it was played by Vijaykanth?
Jude: Molly would have jumped off the building if Vijaykanth had kissed her.
So getting back to season three, I don't know why the creators and writers did such a shoddy job, they already had a formula that worked, I don't know why they had to tweak with it. There was so much of Mycroft and Mary Watson this season, I started missing Inspector Lestrade. And Molly slapping Sherlock, I don't think I liked that either... I mean Mycroft is the only one on this planet who can put Sherlock in his place.Which explains why I did not like Sherlock twisting his brothers' arm either, you don't do that to Mycroft, if Sherlock is to be revered, then Mycroft is one up on reverential scale... you just can't make him cower under his brother's drug induced behaviour. Anyway, what's done is done, hope they better their game and make season four all about Sherlock and his amazing powers of deduction.
It was fun watching these episodes with Nam, the actors as usual have all done a great job, I felt a little bad for Benedict cause he was reduced to a caricature of his former self. But he was still potent enough in a few redeeming scenes to put me under a Benedict Cumberbatch induced high, which was further heightened on receiving a charming card from Shilpa in the mail.
Cute greeting card... huh?
